Mold Inspection Services
One of the oldest organisms on Earth, mold is a fungus — a spore-producing organism that feeds on organic matter. Fungi can grow on almost any substance and thrives anywhere where there is a moist environment.
A necessary part of the the natural environment, mold has the ability to destroy (decay) organic material such as leaves, grass and wood and contributes to the process of soil enrichment. It is this same process of mold growth and decay that can cause damage to your home, business or other structure.
Mildew and molds grow and feed on wood products, ceiling tiles, cardboard, wallpaper, carpets, carpet padding, drywall, fabric, insulation, and other organic materials. Because common building materials are capable of sustaining mold growth, growth in an indoor environment is typically related to water or indoor moisture. However, growth may also occur on flooring materials, such as concrete, when not adequately allowed to dry.
